Widespread roll out of Smart Grid technologies in distribution networks offers the possibility to extend innovative control strategies for increasing the reliability of supply. The research project “SORGLOS” therefore is aimed at developing methods and algorithms to achieve blackout proof network segments (Microgrids) using installed decentralized generation and storage as well as already installed Smart Grid technologies. For the project, black start capability or safe decoupling following a blackout, control of generation and demand side as well as storage management are investigated as well as support for network supply restoration. Moreover, the project “SORGLOS” focusses on legal frameworks and economic potential of such methods.

Project Objectives

The Vision in the project "SORGLOS" is to enable in low voltage grids with decentralized generation, renewable sources and smart grid solutions, blackout resistant girds (micro-grids). The left side of Figure 1 shows the gird connected mode, as it is done now. If an wide area blackout occurs then the "SORLGOS" area decouples and transforms into a stable island operation - what is represented by the right side of Figure 1.
